CAS Non-Traditional Christmas Card

Just a quick post this afternoon. I need a nap! I've been fighting a cold for a whole week now...and I'm really ready to be done with it! Not a very patient patient! (sorry!)
Here is another Christmas card in non-traditional colors....I went way outside my comfort zone on this one. But I do love that background paper with the doily/snowflake print.


I followed a sketch for this one (see below) which made it super easy. I used vellum so the pretty design in the background could show through. The embossing is done in both silver and gold so it has a varigated look and matches the background better...that warm gray was not doing well with plain silver.
So thanks for stopping by today! Here's what I used to make this one:
cardstock - "Original" by Authentique Paper
vellum - "Dots Vellum" by Paper Studio
die - "Labels 4" by Spellbinders
stamp - "Merry Christmas" by Stampabilities
embossing powder - gold & silver by PSE
brads - "White Snowflake" by Making Memories
